IOS interface is beautiful, simple and familiar … painfully familiar. From version to version, the system has undergone only minor visual changes, while remaining fundamentally the same. But there are prerequisites to ensure that iOS 7 will bring not only new opportunities but also some global changes in the appearance of the interface and applications.
